ABC Wednesday and lavender fields forever.


Mrs Nesbitt's Meme ABC Wednesday has arrived at the letter 'L" for today and all I could imagine from all the 'L' words was lavender...that delightful herb, color, fragrance in all its many forms. Soft on the senses. Sweet reminder of spring.

Half purple/half lavender iris and the crayon box lavender of wild phlox in a ditch next to the railroad tracks last summer.

and my ever present eggplant with a colorway from deep purple to nearly white all on one fruit.
Since lavender resembles wild imaginings to me, this front porch I saw on one of my walks drew my eyes straight into the little nook, the comely lavender canvas chair and the hydrangea in its lavender stage before turning blue. I wanted to call this home. . .

Join in the fun and visit ABC Wednesday's third round. And thanks to Denise for hosting such a lively place to spend any given Wednessday.

I can never pass lavender without touching the flowers and smelling my fingers.

I love the wild phlox (Dame's Rocket or Sweet Rocket). Funny how it grows along the tracks and in scrub areas, but I can't get it to grow in my yard. I remember it growing on a wooded vacant lot across the street from my grandma's. Then this summer, I saw it growing in a wooded vacant lot in Bismarck. What childhood memories that brought back!

I can smell it from over here, but that may also be because I have just left a place where they were blooming...

Lavender is my favourite scent. It is so calming.

Such lovely lavender hues! Lavender is a fragrance I also love. I'd also like to move right in to that front porch, and even the roof of the house seems to have lavender shadows.

It is a beautiful color. It was my favorite color in the crayon box. Every princess in my coloring books wore lavender gowns.
